UK Box Office Round Up

Posted in Film on June, 02 2006 8:32 AM

It's been a good week for comedy films in the UK Film charts, with The Wild crashing into third place, behind only X-Men: The Last Stand and The Da Vinci Code.

The Wild , starring Keifer Sutherland and Eddie Izzard (who, by some reviews, utterly steals the second half of the film) has a somewhat similar plot to last years Madagascar in that a group of New York Zoo animals have to break out and rescue one of their number.

Other film comedies in the chart this week include Curious George, another animated comedy about a monkey with a taste for adventure, and romantic comedy Prime starring Uma Thurman and Meryl Streep.

Ice Age 2: the Meltdown hangs on in eight and has now taken almost £30m in the UK - that little squirrel Scrat is the undoubted star of that one - with Jennifer Aniston's Friends With Money sitting at ninth.

Lastly, the comedy film Waiting is in 10th position. Ryan Reynolds stars as the head waiter in a resturant, and the film follows the antics of the staff as they try to keep themselves entertained.
